This week on the podcast we discuss a plan to increase how pedestrian friendly Milwaukee is. City of Milwaukee multi-modal transportation manager Michael Amsden and pedestrian and bicycle coordinator James Hannig join the show to discuss the draft plan.

The plan, available online in draft form, lays out a series of easy-to-implement interventions that need only paint and planters. It also suggests bigger ways to redesign streets to increase safety, improve neighborhoods and develop a more vibrant city. Amsden and Hannig answer host Jeramey Jannene‘s questions about what the plan involves, where it will be used and where the city has already made successful improvements.
